The Poetry Activist Collection

This collection has PEG Poetry TV Shows called the San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV Show with John Rhodes and Clara Hsu. I also have many poetry festivals and other poetry events posted here. The TV Show is nationally viewed especially on channels out east. These poetry shows are hosted by me, John Rhodes and Clara Hsu. The videos are mainly poetry, but included are videos about social activism and the arts. At this moment feel free to air these on your own PEG Channel. As of September 2014 this show has aired on more than 75 channels, about 930 times not counting many re-runs.I have a lot of videos at: http://youtube.com/user/johnfrhodes too. These items are listed arbitrarily in the rather simple creative commons license but if you plan any commercial use of these please contact me as I prefer to retain full rights if used commercially. The creative commons licenses are not specific enough. I realize this complicates things but these are my sentiments.

This is the San Francisco Open Mic Poetry Podcast TV Show with John Rhodes and Clara Hsu. The two poets we have on are Carolyn Mary Kleefeld and Peter Thabit Jones. This was filmed at the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur. This is in 720p. I think archive dot org isn't ready for 720P HD posts as it doesn't seem to have created an appropriate internet version of it. I may revert to posting it in standard def. I'm going to talk to the Internet Archive and see what they recommend.

This is a memorial of Alden Van Buskirk recorded near the end of 2011. Poet Clive Matson was the host. Alden Van Buskirk died from a very obscure fatal disease. in the early 60's. This is an amazing event which I was very proud to have taped. I though it was going to be a rather uneventful get-together with bad lighting, but it was alot of fun recording. This was recorded at Books and Bookshelves in San Francisco at 99 Sanchez. Videographer John Rhodes

Sound afterwords was good but sound person wouldn't let me use my super-cardioid mics and had to go with inferior plain cardioid mics. Sound could have been better.
